Ford Insure a bunch of nut cases

I just recieved my renewal for my GT-P and its gone from $2,400 to $3,700. what a joke are they serious that they think people will re-insure at a price hike like that.Dont they realise you will get from another company.
I seems to me that Ford needs a new research team as a lot of things they are coming up with are simply DUM ideas.

Re: Ford Insure a bunch of nut cases

I spoke to them about insuring my car. I know a guy with the exact same car and exact same mods and i was quoted $400 bucks more even though we are the same age/rating etc. When i asked why they said that they have just changed underwriters (the company who actually supply the policies, i think they now use GIO) and that is why prices have risen.

Re: Ford Insure a bunch of nut cases

When i had my old EL with them, it went from $380 to about $650 in 1 year and they hadnt changed underwriters then...

Pretty crazy if you ask me

Re: Ford Insure a bunch of nut cases

Ford insure is now underwritten by swann insurance there a over priced company that specializes in motorbikes, when I just recently re insured my brothers AU they told me gio will hold all existing policy’s for 1 more year that’s why they don’t care what they charge after this year swann will hold all existing policies...hopefully things will settle down then..<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

Rodderz who insures your ute ?<o:p></o:p>

Re: Ford Insure a bunch of nut cases

XRFPV8 is right, swann insurance are now the underwriters and their pricing is ludicrous. You could find cheaper from many other insurers.
